How to make Créme Brulée

  1. Separate two egg yolks in a mixing bowl.
  2. Add in sugar, vanilla essence and mix well till the sugar gets dissolved.
  3. Heat the cream on a low flame. When you see few bubbles gently about to pop, turn off the flame.
  4. Gradually pour the hot cream into the whisked egg yolk- sugar mixture. Mix it well till it looks like a custard. Then pour this into ramekin cups.
  5. Bake it in a preheated oven at 150 degrees C for 30-35 mins till the edge is set but the centre jiggles a little when the ramekin cup is gently shaken.
  6. Remove from the water bath and cool on a wire rack. Keep it refrigerated till use.
  7. When serving sprinkle sugar on top and blow with the kitchen torch or with a hot flat spoon for the sugar to get caramelised.
  8. Serve it immediately.
